    Seeking information about parents of William Heckler

      I am searching for the parents of William Heckler, my 2nd great-grandfather.  William was born on 01 Jan 1841 in Hessen, Germany and died 30 Jan 1841 in Clinton, Henry, Missouri. I found his obit but nothing mentioned about his parents or siblings, if any.  He was married to Margarette (Margaret) Bauer.  She is from Bavaria, Germany.  They were married in 1868 in Missouri. The 1860 census shows he was living in New York, NY. I do not know when he came to the USA.  I have researched Germans to America list of passengers but nothing with his name shows up.  I am not sure how to research for my ancestors in other countries so I was hoping someone may have comes across his name.
